Arcmain and BLC

Running TD 13.10 and have tables that are setup with BLC. Question is when running Arcmain against these tables will the archives be stored in compressed format or will Arcmain uncompress the blocks before writing to the archive thereby requiring more space to store.

Hi Chet, 

it's #2, in the current releases BLC is only on disk and when you backup a table it will be uncompressed.

That's why you should additionally apply MVC which is kept compressed in backup.
